About Growth of Living Things at Symbio

A visit to Symbio Wildlife Park means the chance to observe first-hand the features and changes of living things! Our experienced Rangers will walk your students through a variety of habitats and environments, giving them the opportunity to investigate how living things grow in different places and their life stages of growth. They can see what meerkats eat, how snakes shed their skin, and how kangaroos carry their young. By the end of their action-packed day, students will be able to describe the ways the different environments of exotic and native Australian animals provide for the needs of living things – how they survive, change, and reproduce.
